About Lifemap - Tree of Life

Lifemap is a tool to interactively explore the Tree of Life by zooming and panning in a manner similar to geographic maps. All nodes and tips of the tree are interactive. On click, a brief description and a picture of the group is displayed. This description is retrieved from Wikipedia.
Lifemap also allows computing and visualizing the "route" between two species or groups of species, or between any species and the root of the Tree of Life.

The tree that is displayed contains around 800,000 species. It is a simplified version of the taxonomy proposed by the NCBI ((National Center for Biotechnology Information). Other versions of the Tree of Life can be explored with Lifemap at http://lifemap.univ-lyon1.fr


Lifemap was written by Damien de Vienne, a CNRS researcher working in the Laboratory of Biometry and Evolutionary Biology (LBBE) in Lyon (France) with support from the informatics department.

What a cool app! I've been looking for a taxonomy for my phone for years. This is the first one I've seen that does what I want.

A useful reference, it can be a little tricky to navigate. It amazes me how much information can be packed into a small program that fits on my phone.

Just perfect. I love following the branches and zooming in. We are such a minority it amazes me we presume so much.
